Share the design files and we'll turn around a quote within 12 hours.

Pricing is transparently based on the number of unique sheets we expect to be necessary.

2. SCAN & BUILD

We engage our nationwide network of surveyors to mobilize on your site as soon as needed. 

We utilize a cutting edge cloud-based registration and process infrastructure for our scans. 

Lastly we work around the clock with three global offices to precisely build a model from the scans.

[  Transparent laser scanning pricing ranging from $0.10-20/ SF, & BIM modeling from $0.02-0.25/SF. Our experts ensure that you get the most precise & cost effective as-built models and drawings possible.  ]

1. PRICE

Share your scope requirements and our project coordinator will turn around a quote & schedule same-day. We can offer options to best fit your budget and attain the precise level of detail required for the job.

Pricing is transparently based on square footage and scope.

3. AUDIT & DELIVERY

We perform our robust internal audit and QA process to ensure that each and every element is precisely as it exists in reality. All plans & models are clear, easy to read and execute.

Lastly, we turn the laser scans, drawings and models over to you for sign-off.

At BIM Theory, our mission is to unlock the full potential of design to ensure that design is never the bottleneck in the construction process. For years, we've watched BIM play the role of a simple insurance policy when it has potential to be a powerful construction aid.

We think beyond a clash-free model to deliver a product that saves you time, money, and headaches in the field. 

BIM Theory is a Chicago-based consultancy that specializes in the customization, management, and implementation of design tools for the AEC industry. Our team brings years of BIM modeling, CAD drafting, laser scanning and consulting expertise to the table with experience in a broad range of project types, technologies, tools and industry requirements. 

We focus on what matters: Delivering hands-on client support with a focus on quality control, real-time access and seamless integration with your standards. We thrive on process innovation, constantly working to improve the process to tap into the full potential of BIM throughout the construction lifecycle.
